The 7 Healthiest Burger Toppings, Ranked


Mind Body Green

Summer is all about getting your grill on, and while you’re likely aware of the health implications of what you’re grilling (we recommend going grass-fed or high-quality plant-based!), you may not have considered the health effects of what goes on your burger. From gut-healing to inflammation-fighting, burger toppings can pack in a ton of benefits.


Cheese is a classic burger topper, and while it’s not at the top of the list, it deserves a spot on it if you choose the right type—grass-fed, pasture-raised cheese. This type of cheese is rich in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a healthy fat that fights against cancer, diabetes, and weight gain. We like Organic Valley and Applegate for their widely available options.
